Let's just say I add my name to those who love "Good Morning Vietnam". The movie is fun and the music is great. We all miss Robin Williams and this may be his best film left to us to admire his comic abilities. He was also a fine actor and he demonstrates that admirably in the film!

Excellent, seen this years ago. Too bad we lost this comic genius in 2014.

I wasn't sure I'd like this, but I loved it. Very funny, but also very moving and serious. Timely, even though it's not current.

I was surprised at how unlike the actual real life Adrian Cronauer, Robin Williams character was. But despite that, the film is a strong entry in to the anti-war Vietnam movie genre (who would have thought that would be its own sub genre?) This is the movie that really cemented Robin Williams legacy. You owe it to him to see this movie if you've ever enjoyed a Robin Williams movie.

Great film starring comedic genius Robin Williams!

A drama and a comedy in one film.

Robin Williams has made so many good movies and this one is just another brilliant performance. Great movie!

I went on the same bandwagon as many re watching old RW flicks.

I would have enjoyed this film a bit more if they would have curbed the profanity a bit.

Along with the commentary on the Vietnam War, this is probably the closest Robin Williams ever got to do his stand-up routine riffs in a movie.

On August 11, 2014 Robin Williams passed away and I thought it only fitting to review his best film for me.
Who can forget the way he shouted out to the troops "GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM!! Then go into a rapid delivery of a lead in to a top 1960's hit song. I use to live in San Francisco during the 1960's and 70's. Sometime during that time I would go to an Improv. Show at a local club. Robin Williams was one of the people on stage. He wasn't famous then, but he was the star each and every time he got on stage. It didn't take Hollywood long to discover him and his rare talent. We will miss you Robin. Thanks for all the great things you did outside of movies. I remember when you did a telethon for the hungry people in this country. I believe it was called Comic Relief. I know you paid for a famous stars medical bills out of your own pocket.
You were a great man and a wonderful actor. KCLS has two copies of your Good Morning, Vietnam and 61 patrons are waiting to see it. They will certainly find a wonderful man and performance in the film. Great work by a Great Man!

When I was in college I joined the staff of the radio station, and one day during the early morning program I got on the mike and started channeling Robin’s performance from this movie, only instead of politicians, celebrities and events from the late 1960’s, we made fun of everyone we knew in school, and politicians, celebrities and events from the 1980’s. Kept that slot for most of my time enrolled. Was the highest rated program we had, and everyone within range was listening to us more than The Z100 Morning Zoo, an actual New York radio broadcast. Only time we ever got serious was when something serious happened like the Challenger accident, or when someone passed away.
